Remembrance Weekend

Three Tabby Cats in Vienna ~ Kashim, Othello and Salome ~ are hosting a Weekend of Remembrance. I'm lighting a candle in remembrance of my li'l darlin's, Pluto and Indy.

Pluto was with me from October, 1991, until November, 2003. He was marvelous ~ playful and cuddly, too!

Indy was with me from April, 1991, until March, 2006. She has been my longest-lived cat so far! She was a superb hunter, and she made the move from California to Texas with ease.

Thankfully, I have my three little jewels with me: Grace and Audace and Ruse!
I love 'em!!

Boys' birthday yesterday

We celebrated Audace and Ruse's birthday yesterday, for sure, but we also celebrated our lovely Grace for giving birth to her four babies and somehow managing to keep them all alive and together until they were all rescued by Auntie Deb at Mommy ML's urging: "Drive! Hurry! Gotta get 'em!!"

Our fave pastime on special birthdays is to go back into the blog and look at the fantastic photos and movies. Yesterday we focused on 2006, of course!! We also enjoyed all the "happy birthday" comments on the yarn and zzzzzzz post!! Thanks to everyone! =)

2006 <~~Click here to zip back to the magic year!!

Fun, fun, fun ... zzzzzzzzzz!

This morning, as I went from my bedroom to the TV room and kitchen, Audace zipped out of my closet and raced into the rest of the rooms with a strand of yarn in his mouth. He was VERY happy! Following is a series of photos that illustrate his joy. Ruse joined him in the chase, too, but Ruse is harder to photograph when he's on the move!

I'd rewind the yarn, and they'd play again, then I'd rewind it and they'd play, and on and on. They kept this up for quite a while, surprising me.

He was all wound up in the yarn and suddenly lay down and almost went to sleep! So I took all the yarn off him - that was quite a job!

A few minutes later, I found the abandoned, mostly unwound ball of yarn in the kitchen!

And here they are, snoozing away!

They must have played with that yarn for a good 75-90 minutes. That's a long time to keep something like that up! Now they've been asleep for about 3 hours! No surprise there!!
